‘Startling humour and theatrical wizardry’ The Observer

Mozart’s timeless classic explores the search for true love and wisdom as the royal prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno must overcome a series of trials in order to rescue Pamina from the grasp of the manipulative Queen of Night.

This is a wonderfully theatrical and imaginative staging where live sound effects and breathtaking animations help bring this captivating tale to life.

The unforgettable storytelling will be matched by music-making of the very highest level, with ENO Music Director Mark Wigglesworth conducting a world-class cast including Allan Clayton as Tamino and Lucy Crowe as Pamina.
